Ahhhh I Needed a Weekend!

This weekend was exactly what I needed!  Ill start with the most embarrassing part and just get that over with...on Saturday morning I woke up at 7am, but I wasn't quite ready to get up yet, so I went back to sleep and poof, I woke up 11am.  Other than teenagers and sick children who sleeps until 11?!?  haha, I still cant get over it, I never sleep that long, I might stay in bed until 11 but never sleep that long!  I'm still amazed, but I do know that I needed some sleep.

My house work was neglected last week so I finally got up and started cleaning house.  I did a couple thousand loads of laundry and got my house back in order then ran some errands around town.  I missed the opportunity to workout due to the 11am wake up call!!!!!  So once my day was done I was sitting on the couch and feeling a little bit guilty that I had not gotten a workout in.  So I laced up my running shoes, you know the ones, and hit the road.

I live in a pseudo-subdivision, its really only about 15 houses on a circle road, we don't have a club house or an association or anything.  For the most part people keep their critters tied up on inside so there is not a big worry about being chased by a dog and there is little to no traffic so its a pretty safe place to run.  Its one big circle almost exactly half a mile and somehow up hill both ways, with a really big hill on one side!  All in all a pretty good running ground. 

I have set up a mini gym in my garage, basically I just put all my workout stuff in one place and the only place it would all fit is in the garage.  So on Saturday night I ran the loop, then did some body weight exercises in the garage and out for another loop.  I started trying to beat my time and now it has become a little game.  So tonight I will try to beat it again.  I'm just glad I found this little game as it started getting hot outside. 

By the time I was done with my workout I was sweating like crazy!!!!   Oh how I have missed the sweat!

Tonight I have to do some weight training because I have let that slip, I usually do every few months or so but now that the afternoons are calming down a bit now that school is out I should be able to get to the gym at least 3 days a week to pick up heavy stuff like I need to! 

I am already getting excited about next weekend....this one was so good just imagine how much I will enjoy 3 days next week!!!!!!
